I've played & taught Guitar (Acoustic & Electric ) , for over 20 years. Performing in bands, and studio recording.

About Jeffrey
Intro***
Hi, My name is Jeff Keefer, I've enjoyed Teaching Guitar, Bass Guitar & Piano to 100's of students, Male & Female (Ages 12 & Up)..for over 20 years. Experience in both , Teaching, and Performing, along with plenty of patience and enthusiasm, I feel makes me an ideal Teaching Candidate!!!
Student Requirements***
I would expect my guitar students to own(or have) their own instrument. If upon inspection I see it's unplayable, I would try and recommend necessary repairs,etc. (same applies for bass students..and piano(especially the tuning..if not electric). .I would want all my students to have a spiral notebook, and/or music staff paper. If they're playing electric guitar or (especially elect. bass, they should own an amp. If they come to my studio, they would only need to bring their instrument(gtr/bass-NOT piano) and notebook, pic
ks..etc. I MAY suggest method books,etc.during the course of lessons, when appropriate.

*** Specialties ***
I prefer to teach popular styles(Rock, Country, Folk)..I can teach Jazz, and have, to students up TO intermediate level. My method, though flexible, tends to lean towards accompaniment. Learning to play their instrument along w/ their favorite song, w/ their own singing(or someone else)..or playing at some point w/ other musicians. Again I'm flexible, and not everybody wants to get in a band, but I find w/about 90% it's in the back of their mind. So to me it's about "SONGS". Learning the songs they like ,they in turn are learning a better understanding of their instrument. ..A better understanding of their instrument, and they can attempt a wider range of song material. It's one big circle, and I instill this to all my students, one way or another.

He is a great music teacher, period. Perfect for anyone who wants to learn piano, guitar or bass, in a simple, affordadle, and highly understandable way. I love the way he teaches, as it makes learning guitar fun, and I look forward to my lessons and practicing at home. He gives 45 minute lessons but they can extend sometimes, which is great. Also, he is super flexible, so rescheduling and changing a practice time with him is very easy. Overall, Jeff is a great music teacher with great skills and a great love for teaching people one of his passions.

I've been taking piano lessons from Jeff for about 8 months now and am thrilled with my progress in such a short time. I had absolutely zero ability or experience in playing music prior to starting. Jeff has an amazing knowledge and passion for music, but more importantly, he has the ability to teach music in a way that is easy to pick up and fun to learn. He is patient with his students and would be an ideal teacher at any level. I would absolutely recommend Jeff to anyone looking to learn music and am looking forward to continuing my lessons in the coming year.

Before learning Classical and Jazz guitar in school, I was a full on Rocker!!! I played SRV/Hendrix style blues rock to what is now old school metal...Metallica, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, etc.
I loved early Prog Rock, pre-era of a million extra strings and down tuned everything. I still love to shred, so if you're still reading this, we may be a fit. Thanks!!!!

About Daniel
- I have a record of success with students of all ages, backgrounds, abilities, and goals
- I teach using a variety of methods and styles, including my own authored books
- I own a music academy where I train others to be successful instructors
- I have a very high student retention rate
- I've been playing over 25 years
- I have a BA in Music from Florida State University
- I have been teaching for 17 years
- I have personally taught over 15,000 private lessons
- I have played in numerous bands
- I have gigged professionally

*** Lesson Details ***
I customize the lessons to the goals of each student. Whether it's for fun and leisure or a driven passion with serious goals, I can give you the tools to accomplish what you want! I love teaching people through the music that they love. So, whether that's Britney Spears, Metallic
a, or Bach, the concepts underlying music are basically the same. I will make sure you can play the music you love and hopefully help you explore new music as well.

*** Studio Equipment ***
In my studio I have a Guild Classical, Alvarez Acoustic, and Epiphone Electric.

All the accessories needed as well. Music Stands, Foot Stools, Picks, Straps, Slides, Tuners, Books, etc.

I also use an iMac in lessons. I like incorporating technology when appropriate, to look up tunes, or do a recording session, it's a necessary tool to learn nowadays.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring everything we need to conduct a proper lesson remotely. I do recommend you have your own guitar though.

*** Specialties ***
For all the advanced knowledge I have and years of teaching students of all kinds, my favorite is teaching beginners. I love seeing someone come in with no knowledge of music, and taking them from milestone to milestone. I love watching new musicians blossom.

I play, teach, and perform most frequently in classical, rock, blues, and pop genres.

Expect to learn the vocabulary for parts of the guitar as well as the amplifier. This class is cool because we get to talk a bit about frequency’s, the range of guitars, and how it pertains to the knobs on the guitar and amp. Oh yeah, and shred distorted licks! The class will require an amp, and I can provide one if needed.

About Chris
I am a jazz guitarist based out of beautiful Los Angeles, California. I received and Associate of Arts degree in Music in 2015, and have been pursuing a bachelors in Jazz Studies since then.

While in community college I really grew into my own as a musician and discovered that I love jazz. Not only the music, but the history of how it formed as well as the differences from classical music. When at school I stood out from the other guitarists because I was hungry to learn and that attitude will hopefully follow me for the rest of my life.

Thats what I'd hope to pass on the students; that knowledge, be it music, english, math, physiology, etc. is the key to everything. And that it doesn't have to be all stuffy and boring! I tailor my lessons to the student whether its guitar, piano, ukulele, etc. and my main objective is to learn and
have fun, so the learning is reinforced with good natured thoughts. This will set up the student to actually want to practice!

As a musician I've been in a couple of groups, and starting to get a jazz group together recently. I also try to utilize the computer to produce when possible so I can learn about that aspect of music. My passion is improvisation/composition, because I hope to one day leave songs behind that people can play forever and be influenced by them like so many have influenced me.

Mr. Chris is really pleasant and fun teacher. He was on time and made his first lesson very interesting. He reviewed my son patiently for whatever he has learned before and then introduced him to some new notes. He didn’t rush with the time and made sure my son is comfortable with him.
Looking forward to the next class with him.👍🏻

Get up and running with lead guitar improvisation in the first lesson!

About Adam
According to Vintage Guitar Magazine I am "looking to bring a new sound to instrumental guitar music" and that my original songs are "a memorable mix of country, jazz, rock and soul that transcends all genres." As a sideman, my resume includes numerous tours with national acts and I've also had songs on SiriusXM Radio.

And I love teaching and sharing my knowledge of music! My teaching background has been with all ages and all levels of students. I've had great success with getting beginners off the ground and helping them play the music they enjoy. Nothing is off-limits whether it be pop songs, fingerpicking, metal anthems, country pickin', jazz standards, blues improvisation -- you name it.

I don't have a "method" but rather tailor our sessions to your individual needs. Everyone is different and I spend the time preparing material
that works for YOU.

*Dec 2018* update -- I have a built up a great student roster and am very full right now. My after work/school slots during the week are full so any lessons would have to be mornings or weekends.

For Electric, I have spent many years learning various techniques of Rock and Metal musicians and can impart those abilities on to you! Students should be prepared for high expectations and learning some amazing techniques.

About Dane
Greetings!

I am a current WSU student of Vocal Music Education with my principle instrument as voice (Tenor). I'm 25 years old, and a well rounded musician with a great sense of humor and a laid back attitude. This isn't to say that my lessons are all fun and games; there is a serious element to every session, but students have always give positive feedback in that they feel very comfortable with me.

I have been singing for 15 years and do so professionally in two churches, one of which I am the section leader of (Fort Street Presbyterian in Detroit). I am also the section leader of the WSU Concert Chorale, the audition level choir. For both voice and guitar, I have studied under numerous great men and women who have guided my practices to the point where I have began to pass my knowledge to others!

My studio for both discipli
nes follow and logical and practical guideline that will allow musicianship in it's greatest form to bloom forth from the student. Heavy emphasis on solid technique, artistry, theory, and ear training makes for a well rounded and informed player/singer! I can teach from my home, your home, online, or even from the practice rooms at Wayne State if Detroit is a good middle ground or closer for you!

Thanks for taking the time to read this :)

It was my first time ever doing a private vocal lesson. I had an audition to prepare for, and went to the only person I would trust. He is so knowledgeable and made things super easy to understand. I felt not only relaxed, but he built up my confidence while teaching me the proper way to shape my vowels. He gave me some techniques for relaxing and breathing, too, which is super helpful for my anxiety. Wouldn't go to anyone else!

Dane is an excellent teacher to work with. You can get a lot accomplished with him any time you work with him. He'll make you feel super comfortable in your own abilities no matter what level you are, while also working with you towards realistic goals. He explains things very well and with patience. He'll treat you way more on a personal one on one level than anybody I've tried to work with thus far. Extremely understanding, and great teacher. 11/10.

Scale techniques with an emphasis on diatonic and pentatonic scales, providing the skills to effectively meander on the fretboard and learn to improvise on the spot. Understanding chord structure and their positions, spanning from styles such as the blues to pop to rock n roll.

About Diana
Diana is a classical guitarist and pianist originally from Santa Fe, New Mexico. In addition to guitar and piano, she teaches voice, ukulele and songwriting in New York City, where she now resides. She spent the better part of a decade studying closely with two mentors: celebrated classical guitarist Lynn McGrath, and revered pianist Stephen Montoya. As a high school student, Diana regularly performed in recitals and participated in competitions and festivals across the U.S., including the Guitar Foundation of America (GFA) and The Parkening Guitar Competition, where she received masterclass instruction from distinguished guitarists like David Russell, Ana Vidovic and Christopher Parkening. She went on to study classical guitar at the North Carolina School for the Arts as the youngest student admitted in her focus at the age of 17, and la
ter completed her studies in music performance, composition, and foreign language at the University of New Mexico. In addition to her classical studies, Diana sang in a variety of traveling choral groups throughout high school and took small roles in the Broadway musicals ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ and ‘Rent’.

In the course of her studies, Diana was honored with awards of excellence from the National Honors Society of Guitar and recognized for her performances with the critically acclaimed woman’s guitar ensemble, ‘Presti Quartet.’ She was selected two years in a row to perform 1st chair in the New Mexico ALLSTATE Guitar Orchestra - the first-ever young woman to earn that position. The following year she was chosen as one of twelve guitarists to represent music in education in the United States.

In the time since her studies, Diana has called many places home. She lived in New Orleans for several years and in that time her music interests broadened to embrace traditional American forms, such as jazz and the blues. During that time she ran a private music practice, teaching children and young adults to become proficient with music. She continued her travels, her studies and her teachings during the summer of 2017 in Spain. She has been living, studying and teaching in New York City since the fall of 2017, always carrying with her the belief that music should never feel like a chore and that learning music should be curiosity-driven, active, enjoyable, and emphasize self-expression. Diana believes in building a strong foundation of musical knowledge with her students by providing the tools to create good habits from the beginning and encouraging effective, deliberate practice. It is her mission to inspire aspiring musicians as a music educator and bring a life-long love of music to her students.

Brandon is the best thing since sliced bread! He is extremely knowledgeable, endlessly patient, calm, kind, and good humored. Brandon enjoys teaching and tailors his crystal-clear explanations to the learning styles and objectives of his students. For example, in my case what really helps is his use of down-to-earth metaphors to explain and concretize concepts and techniques so that I can understand them better. I am very fortunate to have Brandon as my instructor and I hope to continue taking lessons from him in the future .
